Cast of Characters

This is a semi-anonymous blog. “Semi” because I don’t try to hide too much my real identity, but I don’t go out of my way to stop being anonymous either.

So I write using pseudonyms. Here’s the who’s-who:

The Fam:

  • Jake = my tall, dark, and handsome husband.
  • Marixsa = yours truly.
  • Puppy = our dog / makeshift child.  Technically he’s not a puppy anymore, but he sure thinks he is.
  • Kitty = our tiny, feisty, friendly kitty.  She oozes personality.
  • Grumpy Cat = our obese, cantankerous, geriatric kitty.  He’s generally impossible to please.


The Medical Peeps:

  • Dr. C = my main reproductive endocrinologist.  I’ve yet to come up with an appropriate alias for him, but it’s in the works.
  • Dr. Goodman = the reproductive endocrinologist who’s done most of my fertility testing.  She’s a minor character.
  • Dr. Din = The OB/GYN with other, fancy initials behind his name who did my February 2017 surgery.
  • Dr. Maryland = my latest doc who’s working with me to solve the puzzle of my mystery bleeding.
